Just thought I'd mention the obvious in case you had those backwards somehow.
    That's what I'm wondering might be off.

This all started after I tried to check the hand and day home positions as explained in the manual on page 67

    Yes that is very baffling. I would just suggest setting the time manually again, and double-checking that when you do, the am/pm as indicated by the 24 hr clock is correct. If that is done correctly, and the world time clock is still not showing the correct time, then I don't understand what's going on...

    Sorry, I have to get some sleep. Good luck. Hopefully this is a solvable issue.

    Yes I believe, based on the last T+P sync you did. When you press the lower right button once, while the second hand shows whether the last attempt to sync is successful, you will also see that the indicator hand on the right moves to indicate your approximately latitude. However, I am not sure if you move to a different time zone in between sync and when it perform the next autosync whether it checks for your location too. I doubt the autosync actually sync for location too.

    Ok, no explanation, but I know the GPS T+P is until 10:00pm but I just went and did it. All I know is it took about 5 mins and everything spun and spun and spun and now looks correct. I am not sure what happened but I think I am back to "normal" now. Thank you guys for helping...

    FYI - I am East Coast NYC time zone according to the watch

    Good point T4PN - when I set the time manually I didn't look at the 24 hr (10:00) clock to see if it was am/pm. I am sure that was the issue. But then again what is strange when I did the GPS T+P earlier that should have corrected it and it didn't. Believe me the problem was ME not the watch, lol

    In addition, I ordered the combo bracelet from PacParts yesterday. Says it is not in stock but I hope to get it soon, no rush.

    I ordered myself the bracelet too, definitely think it will be killer on the beast. It's funny how I am now ok with spending that much on a part when I used to think that was more than I should spend on a watch, progress haha.

    I think my GPW1000 has become my go - to watch recently from work to play.

    I thought the whole reason we spend an arm and a leg on this watch is so we DON'T have to set it manually.

    If you wanted a $900 watch to set manually, get a Tag or Hamilton ;)

    I only did a manual setting because of the whole issue with the am / pm. It is fine now and sync'd fine
